Members of the public were able to register for tickets from November 10, at a special website, Visitors can register for a free ticket for their chosen site for either Saturday or Sunday, November 29 or 30, which will provide admission for up to two adults and three children.

There is no limit to how many sites can be applied for, although visitors are being urged to be quick to register so they don’t miss out on the chance to visit a great historic property for free with registration closing at 5pm on Friday, November 28.

Stephen Duncan, Director of Commercial and Tourism for Historic Scotland said;

“The ticket giveaway is a great way to visit Scotland’s iconic heritage attractions for free. There are a huge amount of sites to choose from across Scotland – from the recently restored palace of James V at Stirling Palace to the magnificent border abbeys.

“In order to ensure a quality experience for visitors, numbers will be capped at participating sites so we would urge people to get their applications in quickly.”
